Amazing Opportunities in Pakistan

In his name the nations will put their hope (Matthew 12:21 NIV).

Children in a Pakistani village are being given Bible study lessons by a soldier. These orphans are non-Christian children.  The soldier?  A faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ committed to serving the Him at any cost.

No wonder my heart has been so burdened for Pakistan!  For more than two years, I have been praying for a door to open to impact this nation with the love of Christ and the Word of God.  We are rejoicing … a door has suddenly swung wide open!  The Lord led us to a single man who, with his organization, has proven his heart for the people, his passion to evangelize this nation, and his trustworthiness.Military Evidence

Not only do we have a trusted friend in Pakistan, through him and the work he is doing there, we have an opportunity to reach soldiers in the Pakistan Army with Bibles and study materials.  Because the opportunity is so large, we have asked our contact to help us identify the most critical area of needs as our initial commitment to the nation of Pakistan.

Phase 1: There is a large population of Pakistan Army soldiers and their families living in a Muslim community. These are educated people who have shown interest in receiving a Bible and studying the Word of God.  Specifically, here is what is required to meet this need:

  • 300 Bibles in Urdu (320 PKR each)        96,000 PKR / $1,128.22 USD
  • 50 Large Print Bibles in Urdu (585
    PKR each)   29,250 PKR / $343.75 USD
  • 200 Bibles in English (425 PKR each)   85,000 PKR / $998.94 USD

With today’s exchange rate, this totals to $2,470.91 for 550 Bibles, averaging $4.49 each.

Our contact in Pakistan and his team will pay for the transport of the Bibles to the distribution areas, all expenses for their team, etc.  Postal charges will be paid by the local supplier.

I know you are amazed as I am to learn that something like this is even possible. This is why we can’t turn away from this opportunity.

This is only the first phase of many to supply the growing opportunity to reach men, women and children in Pakistan with the Word of God … with salvation, with truth, with hope.  We’re sure you will agree the best place to begin is with Pakistan’s military and their families while the door is open.

We realize this is an aggressive goal especially considering we need to place the order by March 15th to insure the Bibles are delivered and ready to be distributed as soon as training exercises end. The date of distribution has been scheduled to comply with their commander’s request when approached for permission for distribution.  You read that right!  The commanding officers in this particular community have given permission for the Bibles and study materials to be distributed. Only God could open that kind of door,  Only God could make it possible for those who are seeking Him to find Him as they consider the Word of Truth!

If you would, please prayerfully consider helping us fund Phase 1 of our ultimate goal of meeting the many needs for Bibles and humanitarian assistance among the military, their families and their villages.  Please click here to process your donation. Or, if you prefer, please call the office at 419.933.7000 to donate by echeck or credit/debit card.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.  There is a lot of work to be done; millions are still unreached in Pakistan.
